Village pub bringing a ‘sense of community’ to residents

A village pub in Huddersfield is getting ready to welcome back customers with plans to align themselves at the centre of the community.

The Spangled Bull in Kirkheaton reopens its doors later today following the easing of lockdown restrictions.

During the recent lockdown, the pub has been redecorated throughout and a ‘community book-swap library’ created, with thanks to donations from the community. Customers are invited to bring a book that they would like to donate, and take a book that they would like to read. There will also be a number of donation boxes with all money raised going to support local charities.

The pub will begin to serve a full food menu, alongside the introduction of ‘novelty ice creams’ and a take-out option for desserts and hot beverages. Food will be served Thursdays and Fridays 12PM – 2:30PM and 5PM – 8PM, Saturdays from 12PM until 8PM and Sundays 12PM until 6PM. Booking isn’t essential but is recommended.

The establishment is also promoting themselves as dog friendly, providing a water barrel outside and selling a small selection of dog treats with all the proceeds going to local RSPCA charity.

Landlady Dawn Wimpenny told Huddersfield Times: “We cannot wait to welcome our customers back to our brand new revamped pub. We are working hard to place our venue at the heart of the community and welcome to all. The introduction of our food menu will enable us to appeal to much wider audience. We have lots of activities and projects planned over the coming months and we are so excited for our customers to return.”
